And that brings us to the end of our coverage of the first match of the Saturday double-header, with Rajasthan Royals pulling off a fine 34-run victory over Royal Challengers Bangalore to effectively bring the campaign to a screeching end for Virat Kohli and Co. RR pulled off a heist this evening, with their spinners taking centre-stage to contain a batting lineup that boasts of names such as Kohli and AB de Villiers. 

Time for us to shift our attention to the second game of the evening, with Sunrisers Hyderabad winning the toss and electing to bat first against Kolkata Knight Riders at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad. Follow live updates on the fixture on our live blog here

19:50 (IST)

Shreyas Gopal is the Man of the Match for his outstanding figures of 4/16 from four overs! 

Gopal: Feels great. We knew this match is a pressure game. Wouldn't have felt half as good had we lost. (On look of disbelief after dismissing AB) Second time (I've dismissed him). I don't know what to say. This is not a set plan that you can have. They have so much variety in their stroke-making. Was a shock obviously. There was a little help from the wicket. Wanted to use the googlies and flippers. Didn't want to become predictable. (On bowling alongside Ish Sodhi) I keep picking his brains, the way he puts efforts into his ball. Lot of things I can learn from him. 

19:48 (IST)

Ajinkya Rahane, RR captain: This is much-needed victory. We knew that 160 on this wicket it will be difficult to chase. We decided if we get 2-3 wickets early on, we will be in it. Intent was to be positive. We thought if Jofra clicks, we will be in good position. It is important to play good cricket and focus on things we can control. Guys did very well. Klaasen innings not to forget. Rahul's innings upfront was magnificent. It is important to enjoy this victory and stay calm. 

19:34 (IST)

Virat Kohli, Royal Challengers Bangalore captain: Guys were just not up to the mark, and that was disappointing to see. The others should apply themselves. We wanted to strengthen the middle order that hasn't been our strength for the last few years, and something we need to look into going forward. Bulk of the scoring responsibility cannot be on AB all the time. There have to be contributions at important stages. (On positives from the season) Quite a few. Umesh was outstanding. Chahal was good with the ball. Siraj took his opportunities. Moeen grabbed his chances and gave us the balance. We were cruising at one stage. Just to see the way we collapsed thereafter is hurtful. I wish all the other teams all the best. 

19:31 (IST)

After 19.2 overs,Royal Challengers Bangalore 134/10 ( Yuzvendra Chahal 0 , )

Unadkat bowls the final over of the innings, and ends up bowling just two deliveries. Siraj reverse-paddles the ball towards the third man fence for a four off the first ball, before skieing the ball towards square-leg, where likely Man of the Match Gowtham pulls off a fine catch to bring the innings to an end. 

19:30 (IST)

RCB are out of the tournament. Here are the possible scenarios for RR to make it to the play-offs.

1. If KKR win against SRH then RR need to hope that DD beat MI and KXIP should not beat CSK by a big margin.

2. If KKR lose against SRH then RR need to see SRH's winning margin and hope that KXIP won't beat CSK by a big margin.

RR will be out of the tournament..

If KKR win against SRH and MI win against DD.

OUT! Rajasthan Royals win by 30 runs, and they keep their campaign alive, with Mohammed Siraj the last man dismissed as he skies the ball off a slower delivery towards square-leg, where Gowtham caps off a fine day on the field with a superb catch! RCB 134 all out, and are effectively eliminated from IPL 2018!

19:26 (IST)

After 19 overs,Royal Challengers Bangalore 130/9 ( Mohammed Siraj 10 , Yuzvendra Chahal 0)

New batsman Chahal is hit on the pad off a fuller delivery from Archer, and sets off for a bye after a bit of confusion with partner Siraj, with Klaasen missing out on a run-out with a wide throw. Siraj sets off for a single two balls later. Chahal blocks the remaining deliveries of the over, leaving RCB needing a near-impossible 35 runs off the last over. 

19:22 (IST)

After 18 overs,Royal Challengers Bangalore 128/9 ( Mohammed Siraj 9 , Yuzvendra Chahal 0)

Unadkat returns to the attack. Southee continues to attack, standing deep inside his crease and pulling a short ball towards the cow-corner fence for a four. Southee's cameo comes to an end off the last ball of the over, as he mishits a slower ball from the Saurashtra pacer, with Gopal taking the catch at wide long on. Seven runs and a wicket off the over. RCB need 37 to win off 12 balls.

IPL 2018, Rajasthan Royals (RR) vs Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) at Jaipur, latest update and cricket score: Unadkat bowls the final over of the innings, and ends up bowling just two deliveries. Siraj reverse-paddles the ball towards the third man fence for a four off the first ball, before skieing the ball towards square-leg, where likely Man of the Match Gowtham pulls off a fine catch to bring the innings to an end.

Preview: A rejuvenated Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) will face Rajasthan Royals (RR) in a do-or-die Indian Premier League (IPL) game at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium on Saturday.

Fresh from a nail-biting win over Sunrisres Hyderabad on Thursday, the Virat Kohli-led side will be looking to continue the same performance to seal a play-off berth as they also carry a better net run-rate (NRR) than their opponents.

On the other hand, Rasjasthan lost their last encounter against Kolkata Knight Riders and with their NRR at -0.403, the hosts need a win by a huge margin.

Both the sides have 12 points from 13 games and Saturday's match will decide their fate in the ongoing season as a loss will be the end of the road for one of them.

The last time these two sides met, Rajasthan scored 217/4 batting first and later restricted Bangalore at 198/6 to win the match by 19 runs.

Bangalore carries a formidable batting line-up with the likes of Kohli, AB de Villiers, Parthiv Patel, Mandeep Singh and Moeen Ali, who came with impressive show against Hyderabad on Tursday.

Bangalore's batting, more or less, will once again rely on the shoulders of de Villers and Kohli, who have gathered 427 and 526 runs respectively so far.

While Kohli failed against Hyderabad, de Villers blast 69 off 39 to help Bangalore post a amassive total.

In the bowling, RCB's bowlers struggled to stop Kane Williamson (81 off 42) and Manish Pandey (62 off 38) before Mohammed Siraj held his nerve to bowl a fine last over, conceding just five runs besides packing off a well-settled Hyderabad skipper.

Umesh Yadav and Tim Southee will lead the pace attack while Siraj will be eyeing to continue with his last-match show.

Yuzvendra Chahal will once again hand the variety to their spin attack.

Coming to Rajasthan, the hosts will miss the services of Jos Buttler and Ben Stokes, who will return to England for national duty.

Butler has been the key for Rajasthan's batting after smashing five consecutive fifties in his last six games and his absence will surely hurt the Ajinkya Rahane-led side.

Rahane has also not been in the best of form, managing to accumulate just 291 runs from 12 innings.

Sanju Samson looks good with 391 runs from 13 games but has not fired in the last few games.

Rahul Tripathi, Stuart Binny, DJM Short and Jofra Archer have also not lived up to expectations with the bat.

The bowling unit lacks depth as only Archer has come with some impressive shows in the last few games but absence of support from the others is a cause of concern for Rajasthan.

Jaydev Unadkat, Dhawal Kulkarni and K Gowtham have been below par so far and needs to come out with thier best to stop a star-studded Bangalore batting line up.

Bangalore however, will be the favourites in Saturday's crucial clash, which could be seen as a virtual semi-final.

Squad:

Royal Challengers Bangalore - Virat Kohli(Captain), AB de Villiers, Sarfaraz Khan, Brendon McCullum, Chris Woakes, Colin de Grandhomme, Moeen Ali, Quinton de Kock, Umesh Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Manan Vohra, Kulwant Khejroliya, Aniket Choudhary, Navdeep Saini, Murugan Ashwin, Mandeep Singh, Washington Sundar, Pawan Negi, Mohammed Siraj, Parthiv Patel (Wicket-keeper), Aniruddha Joshi, Pavan Deshpande, Tim Southee, Corey Anderson

Rajasthan Royals - Ben Stokes, Stuart Binny, Sanju Samson (Wicket-keeper), Jos Buttler, Rahul Tripathi, D Arcy Short, Krishnappa Gowtham, Jofra Archer, Dhawal Kulkarni, Jaydev Unadkat, Ankit Sharma, Anureet Singh, Shreyas Gopal, Prashant Chopra, Sudhesan Midhun, Ben Laughlin, Mahipal Lomror, Aryaman Birla, Jatin Saxena, Dushmantha Chameera, Ajinkya Rahane(Captain), Heinrich Klaasen, Ish Sodhi

IPL points table: SRH are currently sitting pretty at the top of the table having accumulated 18 points from their 13 games this season. RCB are in fifth position with 12 points from 13 games. Check out the updated IPL points table here.
